Slackware-12.2 & JWM Pro's, Con's and helpful hints?
Hey everyone, trying to work up JWM with my slack install and was wondering these things-
1) Anyone here use JWM as main WM?

2) If yes, how to set it up similar to DSL with menu options, conky, etc?

3)If no, helpful info is appreciated, I have searched the web, but many things are known by members here not on google.

4) Possible issues with JWM and Slack?

Thanks alot!

I briefly played with JWM a year ago or so. There are no packages for Slackware that I have seen anywhere, so I compiled and installed from source. For the most part, it ran very well however I had noticed some issues such as discoloration of windows during startup or exiting of the WM, as well as it would arbitrarily place windows when launching an app, and no real way of configuring the windows much. I hope there is a newer improved version, but I haven't really followed it much.

I think that JWM is a nice and interesting alternative, and I would like to see a package for it, or slackbuild.
